Window World by Karl Lagerfeld – The Short Film

After a controversial short film for the Paris-Shanghai collection, Karl Lagerfeld skipped doing a fashion film for the Paris-Byzance collection. I guess Lagerfeld couldn’t keep himself from shooting a short film though and what we have now is the release of Window World, Uncle Karl’s latest fashion film for Chanel.

Window World features Magdalena Frackowiak, Barbara Dvorakova and Baptiste Giabiconi as mannequins in a store window with music fit for a suspense movie in the background. If Mannequin and Psycho had a baby it would be Window World. Not Karl’s best work but entertaining nonetheless.

The salon at 31 Rue Cambon was transformed to look like a Turkish Tea Room to evoke the theme of the Byzantine-inspired collection.  Stay tuned for a review of the show – it was GORGEOUS!

Chanel Métiers D’Art Pre-Fall 2011 Paris-Byzance Show Invitation

Ah! It’s time for my favorite Chanel collection of the year – the Chanel Métiers D’Art Pre-Fall collection.  Each year, Karl Lagerfeld selects a locale to inspire his pre-fall collection and this year he was inspired by Byzantium because of Coco Chanel’s love of Byzantine-style jewelry.  The show is on Tuesday, December 7th.  Stay tuned for more info – I can’t wait to see this show!
